Bul worsen Simba woes

Bul 1-0 Simba

Bul new signing Shaka Ssozi made use of the 35 minutes he stayed on pitch by grabbing the lone strike that gave the Jinja side a home win over relegation candidates Simba at Kakindu on Tuesday.

The hosts made two changes from the team that lost to Sadolin Paints in the Jinja derby on Saturday relegating former URA duo Godfrey Buni and James Kasibante from the match-day lineup and promoting Yunus Sabira and Blaize Nkolo to the first team.

In the 12th minute, Derrick Walulya made the first open chance in the game after dribbling past four Simba players on the left wing before cutting in a short pass to an unmarked Titus Lubega.

But Lubega’s resultant shot went over the bar with the goalkeeper already down.

The hosts, under assistant coach David Kiwanuka, pressed on for a goal and the pressure nearly yielded results six minutes to the break after good interplay between Umar Mukobe and Lubega ended up in Augustine Nsumba’s path.

But Nsumba’s strong right foot shot was punched back into play by John Kalumba and the midfielder’s hurried rebound could only go wide.

The second half remained a balanced affair until Bul’s second period substitute, Ssozi, made the difference.

Umar Mukobe picked up Oringa’s long throw from the centre, raced on the left side and dinked in a cross that eluded Simba the defence to find Shaka unmarked.

The striker brushed it to the upper right angle beyond the keeper’s reach to send the home fans into wild celebrations.

Victory shoots Bul to ninth on 32 points while Simba remain stuck in the danger zone on 19.
